Le Reve offers a Hydroquinone Alternative For Dark Spots
Finally, there’s a Hydroquinone alternative for dark spots at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique. Hydroquinone is a toxic chemical that is prescribed to help treat dark spots.
What cause dark spots
Melasma or dark spots can be caused by a few different things such as pregnancy, skin trauma, birth control pills or other hormone replacement therapy. Melasma occurs when the melanocyte cells located in the bottom epidermis layer of skin produce melanin. Melanin is what makes dark spots. For people suffering from acne, the dark marks that the spots can leave behind can be quite an issue for some. With that being said, there are methods such as visiting a skincare clinic like victorian cosmetic institute to undergo skin needling sessions, as this is said to help reduce dark marks. This may be something worth looking into.
Hydroquinone works by inhibiting the production of melanin. So what could be wrong with a product that prohibits the production of melanin? Why is there a need for a hydroquinone alternative for dark spots? Well, how about it is toxic for one.
Dangers of Hydroquinone
If you have gone to the dermatologist for melasma, the darker pigmentation of the skin then you have probably heard about Hydroquinone. Hydroquinone is a skin-bleaching agent used for lightening melasma. This chemical does come with some drawbacks which would probably make most avoid it if they only knew. What are those drawbacks? Firstly, this chemical is known to be cytotoxic (i.e. cell-killing). It is because it causes permanent damage your pigment cells that it must be prescribed by a physician when in amounts larger than 2%. Secondly, this cream has shown in some studies to cause the skin to turn a bluish or blackish color. This occurrence is called exogenous ochronosis¹.
The Hydroquinone Alternative
The hydroquinone alternative to dark spots is called the Bright Skin Licorice Root Booster Serum.

Check out this March Spa Special – Serums are $10 Off all month at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique in Santa Barbara California!!!Serums are the “Go To” for skincare professionals looking for the most potent formulation for treating skin. Le Reve’s organic boutique carries serums to help treat all skin types and combat all skin concerns
Serums are comprised of more “active ingredients” than other skin care products. Additionally, serums tend to consist of more expensive ingredients geared towards providing faster results. It is because of this that this crucial pat in any great skincare regimen may tend to be a bit more costly then other products which are generally built up with thickeners . However, when applied properly, a 1-ounce container of serum should last months and provides skincare results in a fraction of the time. I always tell our clients to think of their serum as a daily vitamin. The reason I love this analogy is because just a few drops of these wonderful products can topically provide you a concentrated blend of the properties your skin is begging for.
Le Reve esthetician Sterling wants you to know, “The important part about serums are that they are highly potent and because they are typically built of smaller molecules they are more easily absorbed deeply into skin’s epidermis. This provides a cell turn over and specific rapid results ”
